Some aggrieved customers of DKM
Microfinance in the Brong Ahafo Region are
threatening to embark on a massive
demonstration this Friday August 14, 2015
following the continuous freeze on their
investments by the Bank of Ghana (BoG). The customers have also vowed to prevent
the regional branch of the central bank from
working. According to them their action follows BOG’s
failure to respond to calls to release their
deposits. DKM with branches in Sunyani, Bolgatanga
and Wa had its operations suspended on the
11th of May this year after it violated the
banking act. According to the BOG, the company failed to
hold sufficient assets to meet its liabilities to
depositors. Following the 90 day moratorium, customers of
DKM microfinance have appealed to the
central bank to give back maturing
investments to them whiles investigations
continue a plea the central bank declined. The aggrieved customers numbering about 5000
have been asked to bus themselves to
Sunyani on friday to also demonstrate.dkm
